Gently euthanize cats and dogs at home in Derby

Including Allestree, Oakwood, Belper, and Long Eaton

If your dog or cat is becoming very old or ill, and there is no hope for improvement, then we have to begin to think about euthanasia – also known as ‘put to sleep’ or ‘put down’.

This has usually been carried out at a local vets – you take your cat or dog to the clinic, and they are euthanized there. If you live in the Derby City, or the area around Derby, you can now call on Quietus Vet who will help you and your pet at home.

This service is for dog and cat put to sleep in Derby, Allestree, Oakwood, Belper, and Long Eaton. Paul can visit further south than Derby, but the costs change slightly.

Please take a look at the costs for pet euthanasia.

Caring for your pet afterwards

Quietus Vet is different when it comes to aftercare too.
We can offer a considerate aftercare service - or you can make the arrangements yourself.

There are choices of shared or individual cremation (we bring your pet's ashes home to you. You don't have to make another difficult journey to the vets) – Paul goes the extra mile to make sure he can guarantee and earn your trust.

Your choices are listed on our cremation aftercare pages.

3-Stage Technique

Paul’s 3-Stage Technique creates 3 layers of deepening sedation which means your pet’s final hours are made as peaceful and stress-free as they can be. Sedation alone is not enough to make sure there is no anxiety or pain - so we use our 3-Stages to make sure.

Putting your dog or cat to sleep is a huge event, and it is so important to do it right. It’s vital to know your pet has experienced no euthanasia stress or anxiety and this can only be true by using our extra stage.

We carry this out at your home which means there’s no journey to a clinic – no waiting rooms, no fear. Just a gentle drifting “put to sleep” at home.
